Dave Filoni sat under the George Lucas learning tree and almost a decade after Lucas stepped away and sold Lucasfilm to Disney, his influence is still felt and Dave Filoni discusses that and what the Maker thinks about the world’s most popular in-demand TV series, The Mandalorian.

Dave, you are very close with George Lucas and are considered by many fans to be his heir apparent. What kind of feedback did he give you about season one?

FILONI Not a tremendous amount. We talk about other stuff. When I talk with him, I like to get more knowledge. He’ll give me some reminders, especially before I shoot something, about how many setups I should try to get in a day, and I might rack his brain for certain things about how to cover a scene. He’s been very complimentary. I think he’s enjoyed the show, and he said once [that] now he gets to watch it as a fan and watch it as a viewer. My job is to bring that knowledge forward and pass on what I’ve learned from him in every discipline to Jon and to the creative departments.
